Welcome

Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgrounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism. The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now
growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford. We hope you will join us.

Coming Up

Sunday, May 5th, 10am – Remembering the Earth led by Rev. Telos Whitfield

There are those moments when we can see, hear, and touch the earth, from birds calling
to each other to rivers rushing along, to soft green moss and new leaves. How can we
remember this feeling of awe and peace, and allow it to inspire us to do what we can to
protect and care for our environment?

Sunday, May 19th, 10am – A Poetry Potluck led by Tara Bamford

Please join us for this conversation – a sharing of words and what they mean to us.
Instead of a dish to share, bring your favorite poem or passage to share. These may be
words that have given you inspiration, comfort, strength, joy, anything goes. We’ll talk
about the readings and what we each hear in them.

Sunday, June 2nd – Annual Meeting and Potluck

A 2017 UUSC story of hope highlighted the work of Ursula Rakova, helping her fellow islanders on the Carteret Islands of Papua New Guinea maintain dignity and keep their culture alive, in the face of
re-location due to climate change. Throughout its history, UUSC has advanced human rights and social justice around the world, partnering with those who confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to
challenge oppressive policies. Let us continue to be inspired by this work and support efforts that create lasting and powerful change.
